Chicago, Nebraska and Kansas City!!

l guess it had to happen. With the amount of photos that l take,
 my poor little laptop has decided that it's memory just can't handle any more, 
and so l am having to delete,delete, delete before l can load any new pics.
So just to let you know we are still here and having a wonderful time
 here are a few snaps of whats been happening in the last week.

The city of Chicago.

This most amazing sculpture in Millennium Park, Chicago.
Look at the city in reflection.

From Chicago, we flew to Nebraska, where we have been staying with dear friends.
We took the chance to visit The Quilted Moose, and were fortunate enough to
 have owner Deb Roberts take us and show us around her retreat center,  
If your looking for somewhere to take up to 11 women and enjoy beautiful 
surroundings in which to sew, l can highly recommend this place.
l want to come back!!

Then on to Kansas City for Spring Market, 
where we caught up with Jo Morton and her team.

And of course, The Quilted Crows.
Here they are at their book signing today.
Don't they look like naturals at it!!

Its been a joy and an honor to watch these 2 very special women 
grow and blossom in their designing. They deserve all
recognition that's coming their way.
Go the Crows!!!

Well, that's all from me. l have a ton more pics, but, well,
 you will have to wait till l am home and load them on my computer at home.
Just because the laptops full, l won't stop taking pics, and tomorrow
 will see me with camera in hand as l wander the halls of Quilt Market.

Thanks for staying with me on this mammoth tour of the world.
Its been a blast from start to almost finish. 
And the fun ain't over yet!!!
